Nice. Thanks for sharing. I was given a lathe like that one and need to figure out how to use it.

Fantastic video. You get points for excellent presentation, your speaking style is of very high quality (no uhms or you knows). You also did a really good job with the lighting, as it was easy to see the work you were doing. And even the editing was good.

5 stars!

I’m guessing that you’ve done a transmission job or two?

At least that’s the first thing that I though of when I saw your alignment tool. Great idea!

Did you happen to tape the rest of the turning process?
I wouldn’t mind seeing it if you did.

ah, such fond memories. mine was a C when I was a tender 6 pulling stumps, then cutting hay with a sickle mower and raking up windrows. i was 8 or 9 by then. i graduated to the H pulling a baler making square bales tied with string (IH), then wire (Deere), and lots of plowing, planting, cultivating, spraying, fencing, and more stump pulling. finally the M, Super M, bigger, faster, still red. here’s the sad fact. kids on old tractors helping their dad make a living will be a thing of the past in a few short years. a dying breed. i was glad to be a part. nice turning by the way.
